Studio Technologies has announced the new Model 214A, 215A and 216A Announcer’s Consoles, designed to serve as the audio control centre for announcers, commentators and production personnel.

Studio Technologies Model 214A/215A/216A All models maintain compatibility with the Model 214, 215 and 216, while enhancing reliability and supporting configuration using the STcontroller software application. In addition, the VenueView real-time monitoring features of STcontroller are also supported.

The Announcer’s Consoles are suited to various applications including on-air TV sports broadcasting, stadium announcement and corporate A/V. All three are compatible with broadcast and audio system environments that use Dante Audio-over-Ethernet technology. An Ethernet connection with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) is all that’s required to make a Model 214A, 215A, or 216A part of a sophisticated, networked audio system, with only microphone and pair of headphones (or a broadcast headset) to is complete.

‘Using the STcontroller software application, an enhanced range of configuration choices allow the desired operating parameters to be easily selected,’ says Studio Technologies President, Gordon Kapes. ‘While flexible to configure, the user is presented with an easy-to-understand set of controls and indicators. Audio performance continues to be excellent and suitable for virtually any event.’

The Model 214A’s two pushbutton switches, Model 215A’s three pushbutton switches and Model 216A’s four pushbutton switches allow the user to control the main and talkback audio output channels. On all models, one pushbutton switch controls the status of the Dante main transmitter (output) channel. This is the audio channel intended for on-air, announcement, or other primary uses. The switches use gold-plated contacts for reliable long-term operation and include backlighting using white LEDs. Three rotary controls allow the user to adjust the content and level of the two-channel headphone output. The Model 216A can also serve as a four-channel IFB (interrupted foldback or talent cueing) main station for remote production (REMI) applications. That unit will integrate all on-air, talkback, and cue audio signal routing in one compact package.

Available free of charge from Studio Technologies, the STcontroller software application allows production personnel to quickly and easily configure the capabilities of the Model 214A, 215A and 216A to meet an application’s exact needs. STcontroller is offered in versions that are compatible with the WinOS and macOS operating systems.
